On Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN and Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported that Fangio has reached an agreement with the team to become their next head coach.

Kubiak was John Elway's backup quarterback in Denver and later Elway's offensive coordinator with the Broncos, serving in that role from 1995-2005. The following year (1986) the Bears set the National Football League record for scoring defense and led the National Football League in scoring defense again in 1988, all under Vince Tobin, who himself would go on to a head-coaching post with the Arizona Cardinals. Despite an offer from the Green Bay Packers, Fangio stuck around with the Chicago Bears for one more season.

According to Fangio's bio page on the Bears' website, he's spent 32 years in the NFL.

The Broncos fired former head coach Vance Joseph on December 31 after his second season as head coach. The players played hard for Joseph through the struggles of the past two seasons, and many in the Broncos' complex have repeatedly said they respected how Joseph conducted himself. The 60-year-old coordinator has been with the Bears since 2015 and came over after a few years with Jim Harbaugh and the San Francisco 49ers. "I think there are a lot of things that go into a head coach that it's a feel thing". This will be his first head-coaching gig.

When word got out that Elway had chosen Fangio, Bears cornerback Prince Amukamar a tweeted the hashtag "curse words" and Chicago wide receiver Allen Robinson II tweeted the broken heart emoji.

Fangio has turned Bears" defense into a ferocious unit, one that has echoed the legendary "85 Bears squad.

Fangio has never been a head coach at any level.

The exact weeks and order of the game won't be determined until later this offseason, but Chicago will play all four AFC West teams next season, which will also include Matt Nagy's return to Kansas City. The group is led by Pro Bowl pass rusher Von Miller.
